Description
This sturdy, simple vessel may once have held an offering of food. To the vanished age that created it, it was perhaps an unremarkable pot, notable more for its contents than its beauty. Yet, the passage of time has graced it with qualities it did not originally possess: it serves as a bridge to the past. We wonder whose hands once grasped its handles--perhaps Jacob's as he cooked his lentil stew--and we recognize that it radiates with the energetic touch of those ancient lives. - (P.0116)
